Fortnite had two record highs for peak concurrent players during the month of February.

Epic reports the best Fortnite event ever occurred during the in-game Marshmello concert, in which 10.7 million players showed up.

This past Saturday, February 16, Fortnite saw its best “non-event day” ever with 7.6 million concurrent players.  This was around the time cracks started appearing in-game, leading up to whatever is going to happen at the start of Season 8.

In November 2018, it was reported the game as a whole had 8.3 million concurrent players worldwide.

This was up from 3.4 million concurrent players on February 8, 2018. On that day, the volume of players slammed the servers, causing major service disruptions.
